Satamaito is a Finnish dairy cooperative committed to animal well-being, sustainability, and quality.

“Satamaito chose Orfer because it aims to enhance secondary packaging efficiency and diversify packaging options, thereby improving the dairy’s competitiveness in the fiercely competitive liquid milk market,” explained Anniina Honkanen, CEO at Satamaito.

Satamaito is investing in two wrap-around packaging machines from Orfer, as various clients and their central warehouses require different packaging formats. Orfer will deliver these machines, capable of producing various formats with a single unit, ensuring flexibility and efficiency in meeting the diverse packaging requirements of Satamaito’s clientele.

The machines will handle packaging 200ml, 500ml, and 1-litre gable-top cartons in configurations of 6-pack, 8-pack, and 10-pack. These variations are packed into wrap-around boxes, shoulder boxes, or trays. The secondary packaging will be made entirely from biodegradable materials, aligning with Satamaito’s sustainability goals.

The implementation of the wrap-around packaging machines not only enhances flexibility but also significantly boosts Satamaito’s production capacity.

This cutting-edge wrap-around packaging solution automates the packing of products for both delivery and display efficiently. The machines create packaging around the product group and seal it with hot-melt adhesive.

The robust packaging not only saves up to 20% on packaging materials compared to manually packed products but also minimizes the environmental footprint of transportation by optimizing space, thanks to the enhanced stackability of the product group.

Comprehensive Orfer lifecycle services, including oCare 24/7 remote support, maintenance, and spare parts services, are essential for ensuring efficient and reliable production throughout the entire solution lifecycle.
